Is this really the right lyric to Brass In Pocket by The Pretenders? If so, what on earth does it mean?

All of the lyrics sites that Google produces give me this lyric:
"GOT RHYTHM I CAN'T MISS A BEAT
GOT NEW SKANK IT'S SO REET"
What does "Reet" mean? Also, is there some sort of late-70's slang that would explain the words "Got new skank"?
(PS: Of course I put "define: reet" into Google, but the resulting definition is almost certainly not what Hynde was talking about.)
